I second that. When the bike is in 2 wheel drive, you don't even know that it is there. When you get in the mud and put it in 4 wheel drive it just pulls. It really works when you need it the most. When you are in a bind and one of the front wheels is off the ground, the bike never hesitates, just keeps pullin. I love it. Next to the tires, I think it is the best mod you can do to your bike.
I AGREE!!! IN 2WD YOU DONT FEEL ANYTHING.IN 4WD THE FOREMAN IS DAM NEAR UNSTOPPABLE.I CHICKEN OUT ON NASTY HILL CLIMBS LONG BEFORE THE BIKE LOSES TRACTION.IT IS GREAT FOR MUD AND SNOW, BUY ONE YOU WONT REGRET IT.
For the most part, did it myself. Had a buddy with access to a lathe that machined the ring gear down for me. If you are havin trouble finda machine shop in your area, I would suggest lookin into a engine builder or an axle shop. Both should access to a lathe. You might look to see if there is a vocational metal trades school in your area also. I took a class when I was in high school, and they had good equipment to work with.
I am getting some (hopefully) warranty work done on mine at the moment, and the DGL installed at the same time. Got it from the Honda dealer who is a highlifter dealer, for $5 less than highlifter sells it and no shipping charges, but they are about $30 higher than highlifter on the install. Guess it will average out on the price. But after the last time I got stuck because I didnt have 4wd I coughed up the money!
